Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) is an American company headquartered in San Francisco, California, known for its products of the same name, which are activity trackers, wireless-enabled wearable technology devices that measure data such as the number of steps walked, heart rate, quality of sleep, steps climbed, and other personal metrics involved in fitness. The first product released was the Fitbit Tracker.[2] Some evidence has found that the use of similar devices results in less weight loss rather than more.


Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Fitbit was founded on May 1, 2007 by James Park (CEO) and Eric Friedman (CTO). On May 7, 2015, Fitbit announced it had filed for IPO with a NYSE listing.[14] The IPO was filed for $358 million.[15] The company’s stock began trading with the symbol “FIT”[16] on June 18, 2015.[17] After Fitbit’s stocks fell more than 50% in 2016, CEO James Park announced in October that the company was undergoing a major transformation from what he called a “consumer electronics company” to a “digital healthcare company.”

On December 7, 2016, Fitbit officially announced that they acquired assets from Pebble, including key personnel, as the company decided to stop producing wearable technology. The acquisition excludes Pebble’s hardware products.

In January 2017, Fitbit acquired Romania-based smartwatch startup Vector Watch SRL for $15 million.
